each one stopping and speaking to him. and even a few handing him notes. he had words for them telling them that he would be obedient to the next pope, to his successor, asking them as well to show unity in their selection of who would follow him. then the dramatic departure by helicopter as he left the vatican. the bells rang throughout rome and truly you would just have to have a cold heart not to be impacted by the sound of those bells, realizing what was happening. some eight years ago, they rang when he was chosen. and now here they go again as he leaves, the first to do so, the first pope to step down in some 600 years. his speech to all of the crowd, in his blessing, he said, thank you, thank you, i am a simple pilgrim, it has really been quite a couple of days here, marla. >> mary ann, you've been so great for us. that's a gorgeous shot. thank you so much.

had when goulet was caught videotaping thomas' girlfriend in the shower back in 2007. during that scuffle, goulet fired a gun. he did not hit thomas but was actually eventually acquitted of the felony charges leveled against him. >> it's really crazy. you hear on tv all the time people getting away with things. and this is just one of those things that hits home because someone got away with something. it was pretty bad. and he committed something worse. >> reporter: it's our understanding a memorial is being planned, possibly taking place early next week to honor sergeant baker and detective butler, both veterans of this police department who both leave behind families. one detail that could come out during the news conference, waiting for it to start in about 20 minutes. reporting live here in santa cruz, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> you can visit our website, to learn more about fallen officers lauren

we are here. >> reporter: the customers have been leaving flowers for ayers. we spoke with a man who works at this stand. he said he didn't have much family and called the ceremony sweet. the suspect, white male, 40 years old, 5'9", wearing a dark sweater, dark jeans, dark-colored shoes. investigators are checking video surveillance around here. if you have any information around this, please give them a call. christie smith, nbc bay area. this morning, boeing says it has come up with a permanent fix for its 787 dreamliner. the company's president making the announcement in tokyo this morning. the fix involves rewiring the plane's battery so that potential short circuiting does not spread to other battery cells. this, the company believes, will keep the batteries from overheating and also catching fire. the problem that grounded the fleet in the first place.
>> this solution takes into account any possible event that could occur, any factor, causal factor that could cause an event. and we are very confident that we have this fix that will be permanent and will allow us to continue with the technology. >> all 50 of boeing's dreamliners have been grounded since mid january when there was a battery fire on a flight in boston and then a second one on a flight in japan. engineers at california's space-x with are double-checking their systems. scott mcgrew, third time to the space station. >> this is the third time but all of space-x's trips to the space station have been charmed. expecting lift-off just after 7:00 our time tomorrow. the cab sewell carrying tools, spare parts, stem cells, no ice cream this time. normally unmanned trip to the space station not news. but a private company is doing
it. and it's pretty exciting. turning to stocks, the wheels have come off groupon. the launch was back in 2011. at the time, the biggest tech ipo since google. now it's not clear if mason will continue as ceo after last night's financial report sent the stock into another tailspin. shares in jcpenney are way down after the company reported another quarter of losses. jcpenney is an odd story. its ceo, ron johnson, invented apple stores. he came to jcpenney to revolutionize retail but his ideas have been snubbed by shoppers. johnson's first move was to say, no more sales, we'll just have the lowest price possible. he figured why have high prices that you turn into sales? how can a jewelry store take 50% off a diamond? well, it turns out jcpenney shoppers like sales. the department store just announced it's going to have a sale every week, presumably from slightly higher prices. >> the psychology of the
shopper. shop and i'm there. thank you so much, scott. meteorologist christina loren, time for you to talk about how wonderful our bay area weather is. >> marla, i can tell you right now, i've never wanted to be off work more than today because it is so beautiful out there. it's hard to believe we are still in winter. we're 21 days away from the official start of spring. beautiful clear sky over san jose. 61 degrees in livermore. we're at 60 in san jose. these are your current temperatures. we've already bypassed our seasonal averages in sunnyvale. 56 in san francisco. and if you have the opportunity, lunch right by the water, spectacular conditions in palo alto at 62 degrees right now. not even lunchtime just yet. high pressure is the reason why. strengthened, gained momentum overnight. the winter warm-up will continue. more 70s on the map today and then tomorrow we kick off the warmest day of the year. for today's highs, we're talking
plenty of 70s, especially in the south bay. mid-70s on the way for gilroy. 76 degrees there. 71 in san jose. and 71 in concord. let's take you through those changes. tomorrow morning, expecting a little bit of patchy coastal fog, not a lot. at 3:00 p.m., complete sunshine over the greater bay area. offshore flow fully in effect. that means a beautiful beach day shaping up. the warmest day of the year so far will be tomorrow. that's where we're expecting peak warmth. on saturday, some changes, the fog rolls back in and this is going to keep your temperatures down just a touch. here's what happens. overnight saturday into sunday, our next storm system comes through. if you want to make those outdoor plans, you're going to get a lot better temperatures and much better weather on saturday than sunday with a few showers moving through. then everything changes through next week. more snow on the way to tahoe. friday into saturday, warmest days in the extended period. then we'll drop by about 10 to
15 degrees in some cases from saturday into sunday. turning cloudy on monday. we need the rain at this point so we'll take it. tuesday into wednesday, i think wednesday is going to be the washout. thursday, a few showers early will clear that system out. have a nice weekend. back over to you. >> thanks so much. up next, one of the giants' ace pitchers hoping to catch a break in court. why lawyers are going to bat for allegations of bad behavior. plus, friends for life? what basketball star dennis rodman told kim jong-un during his visit to north korea.

49 erdz tackle, joe stayly posted on twitter, quote, best of luck to alex in k.c., amazing teammate, friend and person. i know he will do great things there. another tweeted, quote, good luck mr. alex smith. i know you'll do great under andy reid in k.c., the ultimate pro. there are multiple reports the 49ers will send smith to the kansas city chiefs on march 12th. in return, san francisco will receive a second-round pick this year and a conditional pick in 2014. we'll be right back.
